Default Henna & Oil

I read somewhere that people use oils to inhibit color uptake when they henna.

Is this like a hot oil treatment with henna?

Can someone please what their process and recipe is for Henna and oil?

I can tell you about my henna melt but it'd be better to watch the video I made on it... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZa6MAZNQVk

It's a mix of henna, shea butter, and coconut oil. I loved it... I actually let mine set in the mold and did it later but you can do it all at once.

I read where someone mixed there henna with warm olive oil. I don't know what that would do for a dye release or if you even want a dye release. if you are using it for conditioning only, oil should be fine but if you want to use if for color, you need to add something acidic. I use green tea and lemon juice because I like red.

Default question along the same lines

Do any of you know how soon after henna (for color, need to cover whites) can I use conditioner, gels, oils, so that they wont strip color?

You should actually condition (really, deep condition) with a non protein conditioner after your henna treatment because henna can be drying. I never had a problem with oils, gels, etc.

Default thanks a bunch

I appreciate your sincerity and experience. Another question there for ya. I notice on your profile, that you have a separate category for your seal-in and your oils. Do you put in daily a sealer and then an oil on top of that?

My sealer ARE oils. I generally moisture daily with a water based leave in and "seal" with oils on top of that.
